Hartley, Laurel M.; Wilke, Brook J.; Schramm, Jonathon W.; D'Avanzo, Charlene; Anderson, Charles W. – BioScience, 2011
Processes that transform carbon (e.g., photosynthesis) play a prominent role in college biology courses. Our goals were to learn about student reasoning related to these processes and provide faculty with tools for instruction and assessment. We created a framework illustrating how carbon-transforming processes can be related to one another during…

Claussen, Dane S. – Academe, 2011
Standard media coverage of higher education hasn't changed that much since the 1940s, and it doesn't serve the core functions of higher education well.

Bovill, Catherine; Cook-Sather, Alison; Felten, Peter – International Journal for Academic Development, 2011
Within higher education, students' voices are frequently overlooked in the design of teaching approaches, courses and curricula.

We present examples where students have worked collaboratively in design processes,…

Brown, Roger – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2011
Although many of the recommendations in "A Test of Leadership: Charting the Future of U.S. Higher Education" (the Spellings Commission report) have still to be implemented, policy makers' insistence that American colleges and universities measure student learning outcomes in a way that permits comparisons seems unlikely to go away. Nor…

In countries charging tuition fees, and those that are considering adopting tuition fee policies, recent economic conditions are making education less affordable and accessible for students.

Whitchurch, Celia; Gordon, George – Tertiary Education and Management, 2011
